Home Standby Generators

South Florida is extremely prone to sporadic, severe thunderstorms and hurricanes. With unexpected summer storms and hurricanes, there is a pretty good chance you may find yourself without electricity. But that doesn’t have to be the case when you install a home standby generator—the perfect solution to your electrical needs.

Modern Installation Solutions services Broward and Palm Beach Counties. We can install a home standby generator that will power your lights during the worst of blackouts, providing 24/7 automatic power protection.

What Will a Home Standby Generator Power?

Have ever been left without power for a few hours, or even over a week? Have you ever returned home from a day at work, only to find your neighborhood is experiencing a power outage?

The main function of a home standby generator is to provide backup power when the electricity from your local provider is disturbed or unavailable. A typical home may have over 100 devices requiring electrical power, so we understand how important a backup power supply from a home standby generator is to your daily routine. A standby generator will power:

  • Lights
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Sump pumps
  • Hot water heaters
  • Refrigerators
  • Security systems
  • Computers
  • And more!

How Does A Standby Generator Work?

There are three basic components to a home standby generator: a generator, transfer switch, and its service entrance breaker.

  • Generator –
    provides power to important or selected systems, including HVAC, refrigeration, hot water heater, and more.

  • Transfer Switch –transfers power responsibilities from your home to your generator.

  • Generator –provides power to important or selected systems, including HVAC, refrigeration, hot water heater, and more.

  • Service Entrance Breaker –protects the circuit breaker, transfer switch, internal breakers, and generator when transferring power from your home to your generator.

When your home loses its electrical power supply, your standby generator will kick on within 10 seconds of losing power. Equipped with a quiet-test mode, your standby generator will run weekly automatic tests to ensure it is properly working and prepared to run any time of day or night, in any weather.
